Support the care of critical forests this Earth Day

Replenish our Forests this Earth Day

Regular price $25 Sale


Give back to our forests

Forests are the lungs of our planet. The leaves, wood, bark, roots, and even the soil of a forest captures carbon dioxide, a critical greenhouse gas, and binds it into the biological cells, giving us oxygen to breathe and helping balance our atmosphere.

Give back to our planet this Earth Day by supporting our forests. When you buy our $25 Earth Day package, you directly support the protection and sustainable care of forests in Appalachia - land that has seen millions of acres destroyed by coal mining and excessive logging. Learn more

$25 helps support the care of trees covering 1 acre in this region, and includes an offset of 1 ton of carbon pollution[1]. Send it on or before Earth Day, April 22nd, to take part in this important day.

How it works

Simply fill out your information and the number of acres you want to support. Once you complete the purchase, we’ll send you an email and certificate with your purchase information - and you’ll receive a receipt.

Your gift will support the care of trees in Appalachia

Coal mining and logging have destroyed over 1.4 million acres of Appalachia.[2]

This means not only lost wildlife habitat, but also the steady disappearance of a forest system that naturally captures and holds carbon pollution, one of the greenhouse gases responsible for climate change.

Your gift can help.

By sending a gift to help support the care of trees in 1, 2 or 3 acres of Appalachia, you will be helping to replenish the Appalachian ecosystem and heal our planet for future generations.

The carbon offsets we purchase are from the Blue Source - Hawk Mountain Improved Forest Management Project and were validated and verified by a neutral third-party verification body, SCS Global Services.

FAQs

How do CleanChoice Energy carbon offsets work? 

Carbon offsets fund projects that reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. When you purchase carbon offsets with CleanChoice Energy, you are specifically helping to fund projects that support the protection and sustainable care of forests in Appalachia. These critical forests absorb and sequester carbon dioxide, storing it in their trunks, leaves, branches, roots and even in the forest soil. Each acre of forest that you support includes an offset of one ton of carbon out of our atmosphere.

Will I really be helping the environment?  

Yes, and in a number of ways. First, and most obviously, you’ll be reducing the amount of carbon in the atmosphere. But beyond that, the Appalachian region is home to one of the oldest and most biologically diverse mountain systems on the continent. This ecosystem offers a myriad of often unsung benefits such as providing critical regulation of soil and water to help prevent floods and droughts. Furthermore, protecting these woods helps ensure the continuation of critical habitat for thousands of critters and plants. Your gift supports the protection and revitalization of this beautiful ecosystem.
